This week, you will be seeing a lot of action at the Solarious website, as I update and expand the back pages with new information for you. Why don’t you stop through and take a tour?
First, check out the food additives page, “In My Food”, where you can find out more about the ingredients that make up you daily diet and how they may affect your health. If you have any expertise or suggestions about ingrdients, please share them, and I’ll follow up by posting more on the topic.
Next, visit the “Success Stories” page to see how others in your position have overcome challenges and maintained inspiration and vision to complete alternative energy projects. Again, please feel free to share any inspiring stories or learning lessons you know of so that others may learn too.
And finally, see the brand-spankin’ new section, “Box it Up”, for an ever-incomplete listing of companies that incorporate recycled packaging and goods into their product lines. I say incomplete, because more companies recognize the need for such sustainable practices every day. Here’s to wishing for that day when ALL companies use recycled goods in their products, reducing our virgin material needs close to zero. Until then, support these companies’ decisions to ensure that they view sustainability as a wise business decision.
In regularly scheduled news, everything here is going great. After a solid week of grey days and spitting rainy weather, the sun is out and blazing. It’s time to get cooking! Over the “down time” of cloudy weather, I walked around the city distributing a new magazine for whom I write. Plenty of time to check out the neighborhood and look for a block to adopt. And… I’ve found one! It took a bit of looking, because in my neighborhood the “Clean Team” (ie. people who’ve gotten community service hours to complete) come around once a week and supposedly clean the streets, so I didn’t want to overlap their areas. And because there is just so much mess to choose from! I’ve chosen a two-block area near my house to start with, and will expand once I figure out how much maintenance that will entail. When I go next week to begin picking up, I’ll post before and after photos. I also found a community garden near where I travel regularly with available plots. With any luck, I’ll be able to scrape up a little cash and get a plot there to feed my growing demand for veggies to steam in the sun! If you’re in the LA area and have a neglected backyard that you want planted for a share of the organic produce, holler! We can help each other out… and isn’t that what life is all about?
